The garden, and the departments of ethnology and archeology are a must-see. The departments give you a taste of culture and history, showing the movement of people on the territory of today's Bosnia.

A typical national museum with human, animal, and plant history displays. Given the focus of the city's other museums on the important events of the 20th century, it is interesting to learn here about Ottoman BH as well as medieval and Roman times. The staff...More
